Lilies of the Valley
At our new home in the country, we have a new set of plants again cultivated by the former owners. The day we closed on the house, a gorgeous Yucca Plant greeted us with a large cluster of white blooms. After we moved actually moved in the house, several Rose of Sharon bushes started blooming. To add to this delight, we have observed a hummingbird flitting around the blossoms. This has added great joy to our country living.
Rose of Sharon
Two interesting plants from my mother-in-law have joined us in the country. One odd plant with a fetid-smelling flower, which my husband's family calls Kruby although the plant is actually named Konjac and scientifically named Amorphophallus konjac. The foul smelling plant has some scary common names like Devil's Tongue and Voodoo Lily. The other plant blooms at night, and my mother-in-law calls this one Night Bloomer because the blooms only open in the dark.
Thanks to Karmyn for hosting this Fun Monday. I am sorry to have missed the real event, but I hope to visit the other particpants to see what is growing at their homes.
